Professor Neal Alexander
of Medical Statistics and Epidemiology
I joined the school in 1998. Since 2004 I have been employed part time by the school and largely been based in Colombia where I am also affiliated with CIDEIM.
I teach on the MSc in Clinical Trials and am co-organizer of the module Protocol Development. I co-wrote material for this and several other modules. I have a Modular MA from the Institute of Education.
I am a member of the MRC International Statistics and Epidemiology Group and work largely on dengue, leishmaniasis, lymphatic filariasis and other parasitic and vector-borne diseases.
I previously worked at the Papua New Guinea Institute of Medical Research, and the Ahmadu Bello University in Kaduna, Nigeria (seconded from the Institute of Ophthalmology, London).
In 1998 I completed a PhD supervised by Bryan Grenfell in the Department of Zoology, University of Cambridge entitled 'Heterogeneity and the Epidemiology of Lymphatic Filariasis'. I also have a BA in Mathematics and a Diploma in Mathematical Statistics from the same university.
